Dog Walking in Westerly

Westerly is a charming beachfront community in Washington County. During the dog days of summer, people come from all over to enjoy the gorgeous white sandy beaches. But the town’s natural beauty isn’t the only benefit for resident pups. There are two veterinary clinics that assist in keeping local canines in tip top shape.

Westerly Town Forest is a great place to spend some time with your four legged friend. Sitting right on the banks of the Pawcatuck River, this beautiful wooded area has three trails ranging from .80 miles to 1.25 miles. Your pal will absolutely love getting some exercise in such a puptastic setting.

With nearly a dozen pet friendly restaurants in town, there’s no need to leave your pooch home when you feel like dining out. Head over to Bridge for a perfect combination of beautiful scenery and delicious food. Sit at the dog friendly patio and enjoy views of the Pawcatuck River while munching on fresh, local seafood. The Haversham Tavern is another option. This 19thcentury tavern serves up classics with a twist. Dine al fresco with your pooch at one of the outdoor tables. 

With such pawsome restaurants, and beautiful outdoor spaces, it’s no wonder dogs feel welcome in Westerly.

Immerse yourself in Westerly’s seafront beauty with a trip to Napatree Point Conservation Point. Gaze out at the Atlantic Ocean and Narragansett Bay while walking along the beach with your furry BFF. She’ll feel the sand beneath her paws while breathing in the salty air. Take a break from the seashore and follow the trails through the sandy dunes. This bit of paradise does have some dog regulations. During the peak season of May 2 through Labor Day, pups cannot visit the area between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.  But, fur-tunately, from Labor Day to May 1, four legged guests are welcome at any time.

If your dog is craving some time in nature, grab his leash and head over to Dr. John Champlin Glacier Park. Not only is this park a pupperific spot for some exercise, it is also a hot bed for unique geological features. A two mile network of trails lets you get a firsthand look at glacial ridges and boulders, kettle ponds, and carved canyons.  There are some steep ascents, so make sure your pal is up for the challenge. Also, since water is not available at the trailhead, you’ll need to bring enough to keep you and your four legged hiking buddy fully hydrated.

He’ll love breathing in the fresh air as he cruises through this beautiful park. This natural space is a perfect bird and butterfly habitat, so keep your eyes peeled for the winged creatures. No doubt about it, this walk will make his tail wag!

Westerly Town Beach is one of the most pup-ular spots in town, especially during the peak summer season. Locals and out of towners love to relax on the white sand while enjoying views of the Atlantic. As with other town beaches, four legged guests are allowed, but need to follow certain guidelines. During summer, or May 2 through Labor Day, pups cannot visit the area between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.  From Labor Day to May 1, four legged guests can splash in the waves at any time. So bring your pooch over and let her feel ocean breeze fun through her fur.  She’ll be one happy hound!
